    We usually do parking lots and would like some help on pricing these condo complexs (4 all together). There are no driveways involved. Only requires street plowing , walkways and door platforms. The owner is asking for a price per storm 2"+. Since I have never done any complexes I could really use opinions. Also will be salted.

    Can you give us some measurements. We need to know more. Let us know how many square feet of pavemet there is, how many square feet of sidewalks, how many door platforms, do you need to shovel in between/behind the cars or is that home owner responsibility,etc...

    Once you know all of that a quick search on here will give you, all the answers you need very quickly

    I'm roughed out at 2-2500 with salt on that for the first 3 inches.

    2 one tons with 9ft blades one with a 2yd sander
    one bobcat 4 series or an S70 for the walks
    Two-four shovelors for the door ways

    2+ storms. What about if you need to come back 4 hrs later? Full price? Your best guess is to break down each unit then multiply it by how may are there,plus a little extra. The road is like 4 passes and out.

    I would think that if I counted each unit individually, I would come out with an astronomical price as an end result...

    How about this. DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT YOU ARE UP AGAINST OR WHAT YOU SHOULD BE CHARGING? How about plus or minus a GRAND no materials. Can you tell us that? Pretty big ball park for you to play in there with that variance.....

    i have plenty of trucks with plows and machines and also man power.
    i have plowed parking lots plenty of times.im just wondering what is average that everyone charges for developments , im not the type of guy to underbid but i also dont want to be to high. the thing is they dont want a seasonal price , they want a price per storm 2" trigger.
